>>""Inquiries" versus "wanted ads" - there is a fine line between inquiring about an animal or product and posting a wanted advertisement for one. For example, it is not ok to announce "If anyone is selling or giving away a lizard, I want one," or "I have a litter of puppies, email me for details." It is ok to inquire about (ask for) if anyone knows a breeder of a certain type of pet, or a seller of a certain kind of product, but it is not ok to offer this type of information unsolicited (unasked for). It is ok for someone to respond to a member's inquiry with "I breed that type of pet and would be glad to talk to you about it if you email me," or "I got my cages from XYZ Catalog and they were great." A brief exchange (one single response) indicating that a user knows of, or offers, a resource related to something being discussed by other users, is acceptable as long as no discussion of prices, payment, or similar commercial topics occurs. Further exchanges must be taken to email. A pattern of regularly recommending a specific company, whether your company or someone else's, may be taken into consideration when evaluating if a pattern of commercial activity is present."

>>Just my $0.02 but I think your request for a specific male was deamed to have crossed the line and was considered a "want ad" and was therefore deleted.
